Things to do in Budapest

Szia (hi in Hungarian) everyone! If you want to explore Central Europe, Budapest is a destination that you cannot miss! Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is known for its thermal springs.

Be pending of the upcoming posts, because then I will be sharing my food moments with you in Budapest 😝                1. Széchenyi Baths On our first day here, we decided to spend our evening in the thermal pools at Széchenyi Baths, the most popular...

The spiciest and cutest city of China (1/2) by Liyen

Hi everyone! My name is Liyen — a Dutch foodie with Asian roots, and just like the peeps of OnlyGoodThings I love to eat, explore, photograph and especially to write. So when I was offered the opportunity for a guest post, I didn’t think twice for the answer “yes”. This post will feature Chengdu — the spiciest and cutest city of China. Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan’s province as well as one of the largest cities situated in Southwest China, and if you ever burned your throat in China, then you probably had a delicious Sichuan dish. At the other end of hot and spicy is soft and cuteness, and this is represented by Chengdu’s Giant Panda Base. When...

Three Days in Hangzhou

The capital of Zhejiang province, and the city in which the G20 summit of 2016 took place is no other than Hangzhou. Despite that it wasn’t crowded at all during the weeks before the G20 took place, the government evidently had spent lots of efforts decorating the city with LED light strips hanging on the trees and such. Later on, we heard from others that the reason for why the city was quite empty the weeks before the G20 was because the government wanted to ensure a perfect G20 so they ordered the inhabitants to have a holiday while also giving them coupons to travel around the Zhejiang province. That’s why we were quite astonished by how little the traffic...

Guilin’s hidden beauty (1/3)

It did not matter who we asked or how many, there were always two destinations that were continuously recommended by friends, family, and even strangers. One of them is Guilin, while the other one is Zhangjiajie also known as the Avatar Mountains, and stay tuned for this one, cause it will be featured by one daring guest writer. #gallery-1 {margin: auto;}#gallery-1 .gallery-item {float: left;margin-top: 10px;text-align: center;width: 33%;}#gallery-1 img {border: 2px solid #cfcfcf;}#gallery-1 .gallery-caption {margin-left: 0;}/* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */   On the day of departure, we woke up early in the morning, and realised that taking the metro would implicate missing the train from Guangzhou to Guilin. So the only option left was taking a taxi, but it was...

London, a dream city

Since young, I have always had London stowed in a special place in my heart because it was my dream city. To me, it has always been a place that looks effortlessly magical and filled with stories that are waiting to be told. Each time I stumbled across a literature or fictional book with the setting in England, I immediately dived into the storyline while noticing the lines that describe every single detail of the surrounding, picturing in my mind how it would actually look back in history. That was how strong my enthusiasm for England was in general, I was looking forward to the day when I will set my foot onto this land filled with magic and youthful...
